COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich lustrous dark red London ale. Rich malt complexities lending notes of toasted caramel, raisins, toffee, and slight roast chocolate. Very light hop additions let the true malt characters promenade throughout the tasting enjoyment this beer offers.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle… Hazy, dark, Longhorn-orange ale with a small, fizzy, khaki head. Decent retention. The nose is malty, toasty and grainy with a whisper of yogurt or sour cream. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is malty and rich - caramel and toffee - with none of the lactic acidity that I expected due to the nose. Toasty, nourishing finish.

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle. Red/brown color with a modest off-white head. The nose is a bit spicy, some red currant, toffee, malts. The taste is moderately sweet. Medium duration, medium mouthfeel. Overall, a strange beer that I don’t particularly rate.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a very dark amber with a red hue in the light and a thin soapy white head, aroma is sweet with notes of dark fruit and malt, the flavor has a touch of chocolate mixed in with the dark fruits and malt, fruity character in the finish, not terrible.

Onslow (1162) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Ruddy brown ale with off white head. Aroma of raisens, figs, roasted malts, a bit of caramel, a bit of tart fruit. Taste starts with a sweet caramel malt that transitions to a sour / tart fruit taste that verges on the unpleasant. Finishes with a bit of lingering sour and tart. Interesting.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
A: The beer pours red in color with a finger of off-white head. S: Some sweet malt and toffee aromas with a strange roast aroma. There is some toasted malt aroma and a touch of caramel. A slight metallic note and some fruitiness. T: Sweet toffee and bread with caramel and toast. As on the aroma, there was a little bit of metal, maybe even some roasted malt. A strange fruitiness, maybe a little bit of tartness. M: Light to medium in body with medium carbonation. O: Not a very good red ale. The strange fruitiness and metal note didn’t do much for me.
